Release notes quoted:

German-born, Sweden-based artist and composer Wolfgang Peter Menzel presents a suite of five compositions. In his own words: "These tracks are results of my listening to body sounds, among them my own body. An earlier recording with pure body sound you can find at ( nr. 155 ). Body sounds surprise both through their rhythm and small melodic elements. At the same time those elements in their variation develop their own dynamics I feel that I had to add some accents like string sounds to sharpen the musical expression.

Sometimes my additional work take over but imagining a human body was easy for me because I think my body is part of my ear. Technically there are no secrets. I record my basic material with a mini disc and a consumer mic and I use consumer software. "
